    Faith indeedy. You got big faith in your own world. Not to worry, the media is making sure lots of non-thinking adults agree with you. No thinking necessary. You're a great example. Thanks.

    Peak oil is a bigger hoax than global warming.

    We passed peak oil in this country in 1971, that hasn't changed in 4 decades. If you want official documentation more recent, see the US Military's March, 2010 warning of peak oil.

    Second, it proposes to ease EPA restrictions/regualtions on building new refineries, nuclear power plants, natural gas exploration and domestic drilling (shame we didn't follow that part)
    There have not been any new refineries proposed to ease restrictions on. We have made the largest investment in history for nuclear power, and we are drilling more oil than in the last decade under a Republican administration. And none of that has the slightest effect on peak oil.

    Third, what that study had concluded was that there were PLENTY hydrocarbon sources available (petro), but not enough refineries to make a finished/consumer ready product. See quote (from your article):

    Try reading the whole report ~

    "As it is, national solutions alone cannot work. Politicians still speak of U.S. energy independence,

    while the United States is importing more than half of its oil supplies and may soon for the first time

    become reliant on sources outside North America for substantial amounts of natural gas.
    More flexible

    environmental regulation and opening of more federal lands to drilling might slow but cannot stop this

    process. Dependence is so incredibly large, and growing so inexorably, that national autonomy is simply

    not a viable goal
    . In the global economy, it may not even be a desirable one."

    Electric cars are a more easy replacement but I don't care about peak oil alarmist, fear mongering.

    If like you say, it's going to happen in a few years, then what else can you do, let people be happy with the way things are now.
    Since you believe that it is unavoidable.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
